Gwinnett County Atlanta Police are still trying to piece together why R&B singer Natina Reed of the female group Blaque, was struck and killed late Friday while standing in a roadway just north of Lilburn.
The main concern for police is what was Reed doing before her death.
As reported by the Atlanta Journal Constitution:
Gwinnett County police would like to speak to “anyone who might have information about anything that could help us determine why she was there, anything to help us understand how this came together,” said police spokesman Sgt. Rich Long.
“As of right now, it does not appear that the driver has any fault in this event,” said Long, who added that it was the driver who contacted police about the accident. The driver, who was not immediately identified, was not expected to be charged, the spokesman said.
Long said investigators were still trying to determine why Reed was in the roadway and whether she was crossing or walking alongside it. The spokesman said CPR was performed at the scene and Reed was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead at 10:59 p.m.
Long said other than the driver and a passenger in the car, there did not appear to be any additional witnesses. The spokesman said more information would be released as facts become available.
Reed died two days before her 33rd birthday. Reed had a 10-year-old son and was once engaged to rapper Kurupt.
